This small memorial to the AOP (Air Observation Post) Squadrons may be found at the Old Sarum Airfield, close to the Boscombe Down Aviation Collection. I must admit I had to look up what an AOP was before I created this page, and having done so feel that this small memorial is really worthy of a much better understanding and exposure.

The first time I saw this memorial in Salisbury Market Square was when I was visiting Salisbury, but I was unable to get any photographs of it due to construction work and a flea market that was on at the time. The next time I saw it the flea market got in the way, and the pics I then used were taken in the late afternoon with my phone. For some reason I am just not able to get decent images of this memorial! I will however try again as the construction that was going on at the square is finally finished. The building in the background is the Guildhall.
